A WESIEKN XAJL.X3 OF XKUTII.
Mr. Henry Lossly was the son of a
gentleman in Georyia, who was in but
modulate circumstances. He was reared
iq tlie general custom of rearing children
among southern planters; he received a
tolerable education and some knowledge
of book-keeping, having spent a few
months in the house of N , in the town
of A .
In the . nineteenth year of his age, he
formed an 'attacliment to Mary Lansing, n
young lady of some accomplishments and
great personal beauty, but her patrimony
was email. Mr. Lossly and Miss Lansing
were frequently in each other's company,
and eveiy time they met, their mutual at
tachment increased. They often spoke of
their affection for each other, and lamented
that iheir prospects were not such as to
justify a connection for life. Thus matters
went on with I hem for several years, till
at length, finding it impossible for them to
bo happy except in each other's society,
they deiei mined to cast their lots together,
and" if they should not bo able to move
through the world in the style they could
wish, they could at all events, support
themselves decently. So they were united
by that tie which is the most sacred and
endearing that can be formed in this life.
For some months after their union the'
did not seem sensible of their want of
means; but it soon became evident that
they would soon have to gain support by
their mutual labor, and as it was also cer
tain that in that country they could do no
more than obtain a mere subsistence, and
at least, in old age, be without any settled
home, to which lliey did not feel willing to
submit, it was thought best that Mr. Lossly
should travel in some new country, get a
piece of land, make some little improve
ment on it, and then return and carry out
his companion. Many were the anxious
thoughts that filled their bosoms. The
husband had his fears lest lie should fail
in obtaining a pleasant h;me for his be
loved one, whom he was about to leave
behind; and the wife already began to
count the months, ihe weeks, and even the
days, she would bo left, as it were, alone
in the world; while on the other hand, they
both looked forward with pleasure to th
time, when, in another country, growing
with its growth, and strengthening with its
strength, thev should rise to a state of im
portance in the world.
The time of sepaiation at last arrived,
and Mr. Lossly, after embracing his best
of all earthly friends, gave the parting
hand, not knowing certainly whUher he
was going. He traveled to the State of
Kentucky, and was about contracting for a
piece of land in the neighborhood where
the town of II is now built. He
availed himself of the first opportunity of
writing a few hues to his companion, in
order to let her know where he was and
what he was doing.
This letter never reached the beloved
object for whom it was intended, but fell
into the hands of one whose name "will be
revealed in that day." Suffice it to say
there was one with whom Mr. Lossly had
been a competitor. An answer came, but
not from Mrs. LotBly. It was, apparently,
from his father, with whom he had left her
during his absence. Oh! horrible letter!
never shall I forget its language:
"Dear Son: Your wife took sick about
a week alter your departure." At first we
did not entertain any fears concerning her.
AfttrBome days her brain became ailected
and she lost her reason; and while in this
situation, she called every person who was
in attendance on her nd came to Bee her,
'Henry!' A short time before her death
she came to herself, and seemed to have
but one desire to live, which was to see
you; and her last sentence waf, 'O my dear
Henry! and shall I never 6ee him more in
this life?' and breathed her last"
On the receipt of this letter, Mr. Lossly
became almost deperate. He made several
attempts to answer this letter but it was
impossible to write on sut-h a painful sub
ject. He became a solitary roar-, in a land
of ctrangTs, with no one to whom he could
unbosom himself; and though grief is fond
of company, he had 'to bear his alone. The
thought of returning to the place where
he had so often beheld the fair face hnd
lovey form of his now lost Mary', without
being able to see her, he could not bear;
and having left but little behind Bave his
companion; that was of any consequence
to him, he gave up the idea of returning.
Neither had he any disposition to settie
himef; and finding that he could sustain
his grief better when traveling than in any
other way, he wandered off without any
setrled point of destination At length he
bund himself at the lead mines of Mis
souri. But he yet beheld objects wUich re;
minded him ofhie losswlifcli induced him
to Blhtt 'still debperlhtbtha TxWbtat of the,
grent forest; 3o he joined liimself to a
company of fur traders, and shaped his
course to the Rocky Mountains.
It was the custom of the company to
post a watch at night, which was proposed
to be taken by turns; yet for some time
Lossly volunteered his services every night
so thai when his companions were asleep,
he would look on the moon and stars,
which once shone on him when, with his
fair, one hanging on his arm, he used to
take his evening excursions. The scream
of panthers did not interrupt him, while j
for the doleful lamentations of the owl he
had a particular fondness. Rarely, for
months did he take his departure from a
camping place without leaving the letters
"M. L." on some one of the hitherto un
disturbed trees of the forest.
He wasted nearly two years among the
north-western Indians. The hardships he
endured, the dangers through which he
passed, all had a great tendency to call off
his mind from former sorrows; and the fe
males that he sometimes looked upon were
so unlike his Mary, that by the lime he
returned to Missouri, he had in some de
gree, regained his former cheerfulness.
But no soonei1 did he enter the settlements
where he saw fair faces and graceful forma,
than a recollection of his departed glorj
returned. But the roll of years at length
wore aM'ay his grief; and finding at last an
object on which he could place his affec
tions, he again entered into a married con
nection. From the time that he left his
companion in Georgia till he married his
secoud wife, it was about five years.
' But what shall wo say about Mrs. Lossly
for strange to tell, she still lived.
Weeks, months and years had rolled by,
but had brought her no tidings of her ab
sent husband. Post offices wereexaminod
but no letters came. His name was
looked for in the public prints, but none
could be found. Travelers were inquired
of, but to no avail. At length she gave
him up as dead, and conceived of his death
in many ways; at one time she would fancy
that 6he could Bee his bones at the bottom
of some river in which he had been
drowned in attempting to cross; again she
could see him in some lonely spot mur
dered by robbers, or destroyed by Iudian
violence; and at other time3 she would
fancy that she saw him languish on some
foreign bed; and after a severe and linger
ing illness fall into the grave among stran
gers. A thousand timeB she looked out
on the way she saw him depart, and
mourned him dead till time had dried awaj
After the lapse of seven long years and
more, since the departure of Mr. Lossly,
Mr. Starks offered his hand in marriage to
Mrs. Lossly, and as it was firmly believed
by herself and friends that Mr. Lossly was
dead, and Mr. Starks being a gentleman
worthy of her, she accepted the offer and
they were married.
At this time Mr. Lossly was living
with his second wife in the State of Mis
souri, where he continued to live for some
thing like eighteen years. About fourteen
years after his marriage, his second wife
died, and he was left with two children, a
son, and a daughter, who was tlie eldest,
and took charge of her father's house
but a little more than three years after the
death of her mother, she married and
moved to North Alabama, and her father
and little brother went with her.
In the meantime, Mrs. Starks had lost
her husband and father, and having but
one child, that a little daughter, she re
moved to North Alabama also, to reside
with an aged uncle who was living in that
part of the country, so that Mr. Lossly and
Mrs. Starks became neighbors and they
again became acquainted with each other
as Col. Lossly, (which title he had ob
tained when among the fur-traders,) and
Mrs. Slavics. They soon formed an at
tachment for each other, and Col. Lossly
eventually offered her his hand in mar
riage, which she accepted. It is to ob
served that during the whole of their in
tercourse, they both took great care never
to mention any circumstance connecting
itself with their first marriage, ana Dotn
passed for having been married but once
They had both been bo very cautious on
this subiect, that the slightest acquain
tance was not discovered until the night
before the marriage was to have been sol
emnized. Perhaps the sacred fount of
their former sorrows was sealed too deep
to be readily broken up again by either of
The night before the marriage, ns they
were conversing alone, the Colonel re
marked that he expected to be a little
frightened on the next evening saying,
with him tlie older the worse lor, saiu ne,
when 1 was married the first time, I was
not so much embarrassed as when I was
married last! to which Mrs. Starks replied
by saying you have been married twice
it seems. The Colonel at first tried to
change the subject of the conversation,
but soon found that woui not do; and
knowing it would have to col. o out sooner
or later, so he went into a detail of all
the cirenmstances connected with bis first
marriage, giving names and dates. This
was a subject on which the Colonel was
eloquent, remarking that his long lost
Mary was not out of his mind one hour at
a time; owing to that fact,' ho often spoke
of her to those who never 'heard of her,
and could not enter into conversation with
him. He went on to state! that she was
his Raphael! his first choice the com
panion of his youth. 1 Havirjg taken lidld
upon his feelings at such an early age, the
r ..... .....!. j.iili.'.U. -IT--
lmpression was inueitoie, uus rcuonou
tiou of her name could not be erased from
his mind; and though, safd ' he, I hare,
passed through the town," the country and
the dreary wilderriess--tlrough. winter,
through ""Bummer, amid friends and foes-
throuo-h' health and affliationB. 'through
smiles and frowns yet I timever borne,
painted upon my WafgihaU tV the Image
of my lardtefi ted-MjrryIcftf" Zbe-mraw
began to gather in the eye ot me L-oionei,
and for a few moments a death-like silence
prevailed. At length, looking upon his
intended bride, he saw that'6he had taken
more than usual interest in the relation he
had been making. He then broke the
silence by sayiug, "you must forgive me
for the kind remembrance I bear for the
beloved companion of my youth." While
he was uttering this sentnce, Mrs. Starks
swooned away, and would have fallen from
her seat had not the Colonel supported
her. While she lay in this death-like state,
many wero tne reflections wnicn passea
through the mind of Col. Lossly. First
supposing that as he had for a time kept
this secret from her, and at last divulged
it without intending to do so, it might
have a tendency to destroy her confidence
in him, or cause her to fear that hi3
affections were bo much placed upon the
memory of his first wife, that it would
be impossible for him to love her as he
ought. These and many other thoughts
of a like kind rushed through his mind,
arid he but awaited the return of utterance
on the part of 'Mrs. Starks, to hear her re
nounce him - forever. But oh, how mis
taken were his fears! no sooner aroused
from her swooning than she threw her
arms around his neck, and resting her
head upon his bosom, sobbed like a child,
crying oiit "Oh my husband! my hus
band!" The Colonel being much aston
ished, inquired rather hnslily what she
meant? With her countenance still beam
ing with joy, and, suffused with tears, she
exclaimed with a'half"choked utterance, "I
am your Mary! your long lost Mary! and
you are my Henry, whom I have mourned
as dead these twenty years."
The joy then became mutual. That
night and the next day were spent in re
lating the circumstances which transpirod
with them during t4ie:t&epaetipn.and in
adoring the Providence that bioughtt hem
together. On the next evening those bid
den to the marriage attended. The parson
came- but there Was no service for him
to render. The transported couple in
formed the company that they had been
lawfully married upwnrds of twenty years
before, and gave in explanation the above
brief outline of their history.
Ci to Detl Early.
To all young persons, to Btudents, to
the sedentary, and to invalids, the fullest
sleep that the system will take, without
artificial means, is the balm "of life with
out it there can be no restoration to health
and nctivity again. Never wake up the
sick or infirm, or young -children of a
morning it is a barbarity; let them wake
of themselves let the care rather be to es
tablish an hour for retiring, bo early that
their fullest sleep may be out before sun
rise. Another item of very great importance
do not hurry up the young and weakly.
It is no advantage to pull them out of bed
ns soon as their eyes open, nor is it best
for the studious, or for the well who have
passed an unusually fatiguing day, to jump
out of the bed the moment they wake until
the sense ot weariness passes from their
limbs. Nature abhors two things; vio
lence and a vaeum. The sun does not
break at once into the glare of the mered-
lan. ino uiurnai nowers untold them
selves by slow degiees; nor the fleetest
beast, nor liveliest bud, leaps at once from
its resting place.
By all of which we mean to say, that
as no physiological truth is more demon
strable than that the brain and with it the
whole nervous svstem, is recuperated by
sleep, it is of the first importance to the
well being of the human system that it
have its fullest measure of it; and to that
end, the habits of retiring to bed early
should bo made imperative on all children,
and no ordinary event should be allowed
to interfere with it. Its mora! healthful
ness is not less important than its physi
cal. ' Many a young woman has made the
first step towards degradation and crime,
and disease, after ten o'clock at night, at
which hours, the year round, the old, the
middle aged and the young should always
be in bed, and then the early rising will
take care of itself, with the incalculable
accompaniment of a fully rested body and
a renovated brain. We repeat it, there is
neither wisdom nor safety, nor health, in
early rising in itself, but there is all of
them in the persistent practice of retiring
to bed at an early hour, Winter, and Sum

An Extensive lUedicul JEstnblisli
ment Tlie&cuiillim vlnn llcmc-
A few days since, we paid a visit to the
extensive medical laboratory of Dr. Ro
back, the well known founder of the Scan
dinavian . System of ; Practice, in this
Country- Few of our citizens are aware
of the extent of the sales of these reme
dies throughout the South, and West, for
the diseases incidental to which Bectious,
they appear to act almost as a Sovereign
specific. For tho benefit of our readers
we '.will furnish 1 a description of' the
premises. . .,...", 1 ;
. The building appropriated to the prepa
ration of the Scandinavian Remedies, is a
twy Jarge and commodious tenctoent fitted
throughout witti'a view to tlie speedy dis
patch of business, which is so systemized,
that its entire operations move like clock
work. Entering upon the first floor, the
attention is attracted to a largo number of
young persons seated at regular intervals,
the entire length of the apartment, and nil
busily engnged in counting, boxing, wrap
ping and labeling the Blood Pills. We
found here a most ingenious contrivance
for boxing the pills, it being bo arranged
that by a simple movement, some forty or
fifty boxes are filled at the same time, all
containing precisely the same number of
little round health restoratives. These
boxes then move from hand to hand among
the operative, each of which adds to its
completeness, until it reaches the last,
when they are neatly put up io bundles of
a gross each, and ready for the market.
Passing into the basement of the build
ing, a large and well ventilated apartment,
we found ourselves surrounded by a large
number of tanks, fitted up in nn improved
manner as filterers. These tanks contained
about 2.G00 gallons of the Blood Purifier,
all in an active state of preparation. Here
we saw any number of implements, of the
names of which we are ignorant, but all,
we presume, used in the manufacture of
the remedies. This department is under
the exclusive control of the Doctor him
self, who gives his personal attention to
the medicines in the uirlerent stages ot
Another apartment we found used as a
drying room, where, ranged upon shelves
we saw what we would have supposed to
be a sufficient quantity of pills to physic
all creation. To our surprise, however,

From a conversation, with the gentleman
who politely showed us through the pre
mises, we learned that not less than 3,500
agents aro engaged in disposing of the
Scandinavian Remedies in different por
tions of the Union.
The Doctor is certainly a thorough -going
business, as well as a scientific man, and
he is determined that his remedies shall be,
not only extensively circulated, but widely
known, and to this end he extendes his ad
vertising influence to over 470 newspapers.
He allows no means to be left untried, by
which the World may know of the. remedies
he offers, and throughout the entire,
country his Almanacs can bfound, sent
gratuitously through his agents, to all who
may desire them. The number of these
Almanacs sent out during the past year
was about 480,000, all of which are gotten
up neatly and filled with useful and in
teresting information, either compiled or
composed by Dr. Roback, who among his
other manifold duties, still has time for
scientific researches in that quarter.
We do not entirely share in the popular
delusion that all proprietor remedies are
"Quack Medicines" for we can see no
reason why medicines, the composition
and effects of which have constituted the
life study of those who have give their un
divided attention to them, should be so
termed. Such remedies must be tried and
judged according to their merits. We
have ourselves tried the Dr's. remedies for
a certain hereditary disease, and the happy
effect that they had in our case, is the
cause of this notice. The Doctor isi man
of great attainments, has travelled, not only
extensively, but to borne purpose, paying
liberally for any imformation he might de
sire in regard to every quality of the in
gredients used in the Scandinavian Reme
dies, in regard to the beneficial properties
of which he is quite an enthusiast.
In regard to his establishment, as we
said before, it is systematized thoroughly
in every department, ana whenever the
Doctor's personal attention is not needed,
t is superintended by able assistants, pre
sided over by Mr. J. J. Joslyn, who, al
though quite a young gentleman, sun pos
sesses every quality of a thorough busi
ness man. All aopear to feel an interest
in common with its proprietor, in perform

Those who have never penetrated the

do well to pay this extensive establishment

Forgiveness. "There is an ugly kind
of forgiveness in tins world a kind ot
hedge-hog forgiveness, snotoui line quins.
Men take one who has offended, and set
him down before the blow-pipe of their
indignation, and scorch him, and burn his
fault into him; and when they have kneaded
him sufficiently with their fiery fists, then
they forgive him."

sion of religion, and has joined tlie Metho

in Lawrence, Bro. Lane rose to give in his
experience. "Brethren and friend," said
the General "if, four years ago, when I
came to Kansas, I had given my soul to
the Lord instead of to Kansas, I would
have been much better off." " .,
"Amen, Bro. Lane, and Kansas would
have been , better off, too," responded a
good brother In tho "Amen corner"
The General was counsel in a case not
long since, and after the evidence had been
given, the Gen. rose to argue the case '
"Gentlemen," said he, "I am happy to
address a Douglas jury, for I know that
justice will be done. I have nothing to

there with kindness."

They were produced. My friend pul
verized them, mixed them in equal quan

causing the mixed powder to adhere, and
placed it in my hollow tooth.
"There," 6aid he, "if that does not cure
you, I will forfeit my head. You may

Cultivate Enekov. Many of the
physidal evilsthe want of vigor, the in
action of the system, languor, and hys
terical o flections which are so prevalent
among the delicate young women of the
present day, may be traced to a want of
well-trained mental power, and well-exer
cised self-control, and to an absence of
fixed habits of employment. Real culti
vation of the intellect, earnest execrise of
the moral powers, the enlargement of the
mind, by the acquirement of knowledge
and the strengthening of its capabilities for
effort, the firmness for endurence of inev
itable evils, and for energy in combating
such as may be overcome, are the ends
which education has to attain; weakness, if
met by indulgence, will not only remain
weakness, but become infirmity. The
power of the mind over the body is im
mense. Let that power be called forth;
let it be trained and exercised, and vigor,
both of mind and body, will be the result.
There is a homely, unpolished saying, that
"it is better to wear out than to ruft out;"
but it tells a plain truth rust consumes
faster than use. Better, a million times
better, to work hard, hard, even to the
shortning of existence, than to sleep and
eat away the precious gift of life, giving,
no other cognizance of its possession. By
work, industry, of whatever kind it, may
be, we give a practical acknowledgement
of the value of life, of its high intentions,
of its manifold duties. Earnest, active in
dustry, is a living hymn of praise, a never
failing source of happiness; it is obedience,
for it is God's great law for moral existence.
